A casual glance at Parton's discography shows that girl was on a roll in early 1970s - in addition to constant touring, concerts and TV work with her duet partner Porter Wagoner, Dolly had released THREE albums in 1971. with most of the songs were written by herself (except gospel album, but even there she managed to squeeze few originals). And listen folks, these songs were not just a throwaway either, rollicking "Joshua" was her first Nr.1 chart single and got her "Grammy" nomination that year.

Throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries, the United States, land of freedom, open to the world, a democracy concerned with human rights, attracted emigrants of all origins. Rightly or wrongly, the young nation, in full economic expansion, embodied a land of redemption for the composers brought together by Ophélie Gaillard. After Alvorada, her globe-trotting cello leads us in the footsteps of Bloch, Korngold, Prokofiev, Chava Alberstein and Giora Feidmann, singing their exile, whether suffered or deliberately chosen.

Michael Henderson's solo debut Solid brought immediate recognition to the longtime backing vocalist/musician. The mesmerizing ballad "Be My Girl" was the first release, and it propelled Henderson to number 23 on the R&B charts. (He later produced the same song for the Dramatics.) Composed by Henderson, "Valentine Love" is an even more indelible ballad. The spirited, seductive sax introduction bows to a poetic narrative and a smooth rhythm in which Henderson gives a ample vocal exhibition. The single was originally featured on Norman Connors' Saturday Night Special album, with Henderson sharing lead vocal duties with Jean Carne.

It’s an album that features raw, intimate interpretations of some of the cornerstones of Rock’n’Roll alongside five new numbers by one of our most consistently brilliant recording artists.
